invasion robbery that targeted a college student. and a major gas tax is being voted on today in new jersey. and the big story on "action news" is a dramatic shift in hurricane matthew's track. it's expected to have a bigger impact on eastern florida. people on the barrier island is ordered to evacuate this afternoon. and the national guard is mobilized and people are being told in charleston and beaufort to leave today. disaster teams in the caribbean are working to assess the damage in haiti and cuba. the storm is heading for the bahamas next. david murphy is tracking the hurricane's path and what it means for our area. >> reporter: things change for our area as well. it has past cuba and is barrelling in on the southern bahamas. can you clearly see the eye of the hurricane. a strong hurricane at category 3 and probably growing as it heads
12:02 pm
towards florida. the current watches and warnings probably include all of the bahamas. and a good portion of the east coast of florida as well. and even down toward the keys, you have a tropical storm warning there. and then a hurricane watch farther up the coast and that will almost certainly become a hurricane warning as the storm gets closer. where is the storm going? the beginning will not look a lot different. this looks like a category 3 and then a 4 going through the northern bahamas by thursday evening. but look at the new track and how close it is to areas just north of miami. a hurricane on the coast like this will create tremendous form surge and heavy surf. and strong damaging winded as well. and then it looks like the storm stays as a category 4 storm past jacksonville before diminishing to a category 2 as it gets into
12:03 pm
the south carolina area. this developed in the models last night and kicked in tomorrow after 5:00 and now with the new run i show you here the storm doesn't want to come up the east coast anymore, the most likely range of tracks in this wide bubble you see here doesn't even come close to us. it looks like we have no impact from this except maybe choppy surf at the shore. what happens to the storm next is a question mark as it could do a retro grade back to florida over the next several days and after that it's anyone's guess, maybe up to the north and maybe out to sea. when i come back we'll look at the details on this storm and we still have to talk about tropical storm nicole. there may be a third feature in the process of developing as well in the tropics just west of the leeward islands. >> thank you david. visit our website, to monitor the path of hurricane

david here with northern check of the accuweather forecast bright and sunny out there. >> nice today and nice for the next several days. and the weekend looking good because the changed track of matthew. stormtracker 6 live double scan looking good out there with the lack of precipitation and sky 6 hd or the action cam out earlier, and beautiful blue skies across philadelphia and across the region. and tranquil weather too you see the water moving. temperature 66 in philadelphia. a bit on the cool side and looking good. and winds north-northeast at 8 miles per hour. a bit a breeze. and as we look at the numbers across the region, mid-60s from allentown to millville and 65 in cape may. everyone is even across the sun, you see the cloud cover across the region and more high cloud cover off the coast.
12:25 pm
and partly sunny today with at times full sunshine and sometimes a mix. partly sunny in the lehigh valley. and 70 and pleasant. at the shore cooler holding at 66 degrees in most shore communes, partly sunny there and on the breezy side. in philadelphia we expect to add 5 degrees to the temperature and wind up at 71 degrees and partly sunny overall and a bit a breeze at 7 miles per hour. and clear and by morning there is one against fog developing, we didn't see much of that this morning. on to hurricane matthew, now 105 miles away from the central bahamas, a category 3 storm with 127 miles per hour winds. expected to get to a category 3 storm, and the red line is the most likely track. but it can go anywhere within this wide cone. and friday evening a category 4 close to the coast of florida
12:26 pm
and maybe even coming into contact with florida and going down to a category as it gets up to the carolinas, the next big story with this is how the storm this morning at 5:00 a.m. and now with the more recent model within the last hour or so, it's taking the storm so far south that the cone is well aware from us. it looks like we don't get an impact from the storm now. it looks like it may want to curve to the southeast and there is model indication that it may want to come back to the coast of florida before cutting north along the coast or heading out to bermuda. and the spaghetti plot models should give you high confidence that it stays to the south. and this is tropical storm nicole and that looks to stay a tropical storm and peter out before affecting bermuda. there is also a third issue, this tropical wave that only has
12:27 pm
a 10% chance of developing into a tropical storm at this point. 71 is today's high, accuweather says partly sunny and 75 and beautiful tomorrow and 73 and great on friday and now with matthew down to the south a front comes through and gives us mostly cloudy skies and a high of 70 and models have a period of rain at some point and not heavy rain though and if matthew stays to the south with clouds and sun and a high of 67 and staying with similar conditions, not a sure thing that matthew stays to the south and that is a consistent pattern for the last 0 hours. we hope it stays down there. >> thank you david. well, a new exhibit at the barnes foundation has you saying thank you. a wonderful display of french photography dating back to the 1800s, it's called live and life will give you pictures, master works of french photography, members will see hundred vintage
